Bacteria as a Vaccine Against Corona Body

Researchers at the University of Würzburg recently presented a novel approach in the search for vaccine against the corona virus SARs-CoV-2, or Covid-19. In two points, this approach differs drastically from the vaccines used in the current inoculation drives, and whose effects and side effects have frequently been debated. The vaccine the Würzburg scientists are

Covid-19: Risk Factor Periodontitis Body

Several years ago, we already published an article on this website on periodontitis not only compromising your teeth and gums, but also heart and cardiovascular system (see http://www.gesunde-bakterien.de/en/periodontitis-puts-heart-and-teeth-at-risk/). Recently, international research also showed that periodontitis may have a negative influence on and increase the severity of the course of Covid-19 infections. Scientists analyzed the data

Prescription of Antibiotics by Physicians Drops Body, General

Antibiotika

Recently, the Kaufmännische Krankenkasse (KKH) reported that compared to a decade ago physicians in Germany prescribed fewer antibiotics. On average, treatment rates had fallen by some 11 percent, with prescription to children and teenagers dropping even more significantly (toddlers: minus 30 percent). This is a positive development. Only too often, antibiotics were prescribed even when

Study: Bacteria Are Good for Our Immune System Body

Immunsystem

Lactic acid bacteria, which can be found in fermented foods such as sauerkraut or yoghurt, support our immune system and hence human health (cf. http://www.gesunde-bakterien.de/en/fermentation-bacteria-preserve-foods-and-nutrients-2/). Scientists at the University of Leipzig have now demonstrated the mechanisms behind this. They examined how lactic acid bacteria interact with specific receptors on the surface of cells in our

Bacteria as Bio-Markers in the Early Detection of Bowel Cancer Body, Digestion, General

Darmkrebs

So far, stool samples or colonoscopies have been the only ways to detect colorectal cancer in its early stages. This may change in the future. Evidence is provided by an international study conducted by the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg, Germany (see also http://www.gesunde-bakterien.de/en/crucial-bacteria-how-the-gut-determines-our-lives/), in collaboration with the University of Copenhagen. Researchers found

Detrimental Influences of Antibiotics on Gut Flora and Good Bacteria Body, Digestion, General

Antibiotika

Antibiotics are effective against harmful bacteria in the body, but not only against these: Destroyed are not only pathogens (i.e. bacteria with disease-causing properties), but also bacteria which are useful, harmless, and occasionally very important for our health. Gut bacteria, in particular, are seriously affected during treatment with broad-spectrum antibiotics. Recently, a group of researchers
